frequency modulation (FM)

Popular Terms
Method of broadcasting electrical signals that cannot travel very far on their own. In this method, the signal is imposed or 'imprinted' on a carrier wave whose frequency increases or diminishes with the frequency of the signal. FM transmission operates in 88 to 108 megahertz frequency band, and is less susceptible to electromagnetic interference than amplitude modulation (AM).
